When does it go on sale usually. I'm looking to buy a good sound system. 

How is your experience? 

Thinking if I should get a 5.1 system or a soundbar. Soundbar would be a lot cleaner. 

Usually around festivals.

The experience has been great, I think its the best solution in its price range. 

Its a 11.1.4 system, so it has rear speakers and a sub. They have power cables, but connect to the soundbar wirelessly.

I want to buy it. But I have boards in a month and a half. My patents are not letting me. I tried to get it when it released at a time where boards were nearly 3 months away. And they agreed until 3 days before launch where they just said no. Being 16 can really suck sometimes.

 

I know you must've heard this a lot but trust us when we say that school life is the easiest part of it. It just gets harder :nerves:

Indeed. Paid 16.5k (MRP IS 12.5k). It was 20k on their site before and I could bring myself to live with paying 16.5 for it so bought it. Tbh, some of the stuff they say is “imported” (like this CE, some PS5/SX etc) are just Indian units itself. I had confirmed it when I initially enquired about the CE when they were selling for 20k. Since it said it was imported, I wanted to know if it would activate in an Indian account and the guy eventually admitted that it’s an Indian unit.

Called it. These assholes are diverting Indian units at scalper rates. Ridiculous

Can someone tweet about these guys to Sony? AFAIK, Sony is so controlling these days, that if quite a bit of people report - these guys will not have any units allocated to them in future.

Listen to a soundbar, if you are satisfied with it then proceed but a discrete 5.1 system will deliver much better fidelity and wow-factor!

Simple solution is to stop buying from local retailers and just stick to the bigger ones. 

Most of them are scum and deserve to driven out of business. There is hardly 200-300 rupees difference between amazon vs. these smaller ones anyways.

He never gonna get this till he reaches that point in his life.

I dont think without experiencing that situation anyone can understand it.

 

I was the yonger one in my family

I never understood that feeling when i was in school.

When all of my elder bro/sis used to say beta maje kr lo yhi time hai.

And at that time all i wanted is to grow up so that i can control my life and do all of those things i want

I was f**king stupid

Nah, there are a lot of benefits to supporting smaller retailers. For example, I got Ni No Kuni 2 Prince's Edition at a very reasonable price from small retailer at launch. Very equivalent to US$ price (Maybe some 200 Rs more). And that edition was not even released in India. The retailer arranged for it, because I asked him for it. 

 

A friend of mine got Horizon 2 Collector's Edition for 12k (The Official Price). He would not have got it if it was a national chain, because of competition from the entire country. If you are a regular customer of a small retailer, they might even keep 1 unit of next gen console for you (Non-scalper prices) and sell you official stock. It's like a small town market. The supplier knows you, and will sell you, while you give him business on a somewhat regular basis. 

 

Just because 1 small retailer is cheating, does not mean all are bad.

I don't want to develop a relationship just to have the privelege of buying something for MRP.

You also get stuff that is not officially released here, as I said. Your other option would have been importing from Amazon.com/Playasia etc., waiting for 1 month, and then possibly paying 30% Customs on top of it. As far as "Privilege" of buying at MRP - you do get to quit the lottery rat race of Amazon.in/FK/RD. You don't have to "Keep Clicking, hoping your order has gone through and hoping you were not charged twice by accident". Your machine is secure - you will not get any calls from Customer Care asking you to "Please Cancel Your Order". Best part - the retailers can also liaison with Sony/MS in case your machine needs repairing.

I don't have my head wired to a controller with the controller in somebody elses hand controlling every goddamn thing. Still look fwd to college a lil bit. Hope its as peak of life as everyone also says.
